    Hi Folks,

    I switched over to LXDE for a lighter desktop (I don't use many of Gnome's bells and whistles), and my installation of VLC does not show up anywhere. I can run it from the command line,...

    Update :

    I got in through the grub menu and edited the boot options to include a single boot to root. Once I had root, I reinstalled the gnome shell and rebooted. Works fine now and back to...
  3. [SOLVED] HELP! I screwed up my boot-loader

    Hi Folks,

    I messed up. I was trying to change the image on my login screen (which I had done previously without a problem). I copied the image file to the proper directory (/usr/share/backgrounds)...
  4. Benefit of Gnome Flashback in 18.04???

    Hi Folks,

    Quick question.

    I used Gnome Flashback when I had 16.04 installed and I liked it.

    I tried using it with 18.04 and it didn't seem any quicker or much lighter on resources than the...
  5. Analyze Blame - Holy Cow, is this normal?

    I ran system-md analyze blame to try to figure out what's going on with my seemingly-random slow-boot issue. Sometimes things will boot or reboot normally. Other times, for no apparent reason, the...

    Re: Voyager I

    Back in early 2008, I purchased an Acer Aspire One netbook which was manufactured in Taiwan. I used it for 8 years - heavy daily use. Eventually, the LCD screen had dead pixels on it. One of the USB...

    Microsoft invades Github

    Even though I am not an active coder, this development troubles me. For one, I am not entirely convinced of Microsoft's apparent reversal of attitude towards open source.

    Secondly, Microsoft has...

    It's always been my understanding that those rankings are strictly page hits. Many of these hits could be bots or spiders. There is no way of knowing for sure. Also, for all we know, the rankings are...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Non-Generic Tips to Speed Up Ubuntu on Limited-RAM systems

    I noticed the same thing about conflicts. I installed Lubuntu over Ubuntu and the apps would get confused. Sometimes it would use Lubuntu's file manager (forget the name), and other times it would...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Need a Good DARK Theme for 18.04

    Thanks Kazakore - even though I did not follow all of it, I did learn a couple of things about themes. Now I know the difference between gtk2 and gtk3. :)
  15. [ubuntu] Recommendations for Good Themes that work with 18.04

    I have been trying out some new themes for 18.04 and most of them do not work. It appears that many themes that worked with 16.04, do not work any more.

    I know about the new community theme and I...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Need a Good DARK Theme for 18.04

    I tried looking at that thread, but it's mostly Greek to me.

    Is there a difference between a Gnome Shell Theme and a "regular" Theme?

    I extracted some theme files into the .theme folder, but...

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Need a Good DARK Theme for 18.04

    I saw that Equilux theme and was interested in it, but didn't know which (or all) of the files to download. There are 10 files in there. Do I download them all and put them in the ".themes" folder?

  21. [ubuntu] Re: Non-Generic Tips to Speed Up Ubuntu on Limited-RAM systems

    I will be updating to 18.04.1 when it comes out. Will I still need to download Beignet after updating, or will that newer version of Ubuntu have the updated GPU drivers?
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Non-Generic Tips to Speed Up Ubuntu on Limited-RAM systems

    There is no Beignet in the Ubuntu Software Center, but I do see an older (November 2015) version via Synaptic. Here is a screenshot of the changelog of that version.

    I'm still a little green...
